SPS Corals

Hydnophora is a pretty SPS coral, but carries a very powerful sting. If other corals come into contact with it, they will often lose. This one is a Plating Hydnophora, rather than the more common branching kind. Strong light, reef parameters, and good flow are all requirements that must be met.
